So you have this tiny bottle in your hands. Now what?
There are 3 main ways to use essential oils: 🌿 Aromatic : The essential oil can be diffused on inhaled directly for a stimulating aromatic experience. This helps improve mood and purify the air of unwanted doors. 🌿 Topical : Essential oils are easily absorbed by the skin and can be safely applied topically by itself, with other topical oils, or with carrier oils. 🌿 Internal : The essential oil can also be used internally to support a variety of health benefits. They can be put inside of veggie capsules or added to drinks or food.
Rolling after leg day today! ...the view at home just isn’t the same as in the mountains with the fresh mountain air. Regardless of where you are that fascia release is 👌🏻 and much needed! .
Today, it rained a bit. I've always found comfort in the rain; it's the world's way of slowing us down and having us focus on each step so we don't slip. It helps us to pause and acknowledge the way the earth is moving despite the day we mindlessly trudge through.
We try to plan for the rain - considering it in how we dress, what we do and where we go. People wear special shoes for it, carry cover and even cancel their plans to avoid getting wet. It encourages even the most shallow of people to think a little deeper and consider something beyond themselves.
The rain reminds us that in order to grow, we must still ourselves enough to receive watering. The cloudy atmosphere helps make everything that was already around you pop so much more vibrantly, giving you an appreciation like you're seeing it for the first time. The darker sky helps you to see much farther while the sunshine can be so blinding, limiting our perspective.
On rainy days, I feel understood, I feel refreshed, I feel more alive than ever. I think it has everything to do with the world around me being fed and cleansed enough to come back to life itself. We become what we surround ourselves with. I hope to never become a desert land, thirsting for something that comes briefly and occasionally. I want to live in abundance so that I can abundantly give to others along the way. I'm not here to survive, I'm here to thrive.
There are times I feel very empty. And there may be uncertainty under and all around me. I try to remind myself that I can choose to fill that emptiness with gratitude, hope, positive action - and contentment. It’s not always easy - but always better!
I absolutely love that my daughters daycare are committed to providing a natural and safe environment for my child’s health... They not only provide a specialised organic food program providing optimal nutrition and no artificial ingredients, made fresh daily by our onsite nutritionist and chef. We provide a chemical free zone, using all natural cleaning products and pest control, as well as providing non-toxic, biodegradable bamboo nappies and wipes.
I love even more that they embrace essential oils - each classroom has a diffuser and they diffuse essential oils for the kids. 🌱 lavender for its calming properties 🌱 onguard for its protecting and immune benefits - which is so needed in child care!
I recently surveyed the teachers on whether they found the oils of benefit - they all agreed that;
🌱they loved the smell the oils gave the classrooms it helped brighten the rooms
🌱 it helped the children calm down ready for naps, and in the babies room definitely helped them sleep sounder for longer 🌱 I for one have noticed my daughter has been sick a lot less this year than last
I would love to see diffusers in every classroom in every school! If you have a day care centre private or main stream and would like to know more please contact me and we can arrange a consultation and workshop
Today’s adventure is brought to you by a Multitasking Mama yoga class at @vancouverwellness with @andreadysetgrow.

The Littles can play together while mama gets some “me time,” and maaaybe even makes some Mom friends. #sanitysavers

Isn’t this just the cutest?! I hit the oily team jackpot when I became a member a couple of years ago. 📷 by Amie Folkman⠀
My son told me a couple of days ago, when I was grabbing specific oils for a diffuser recipe, that it seemed like I was making potions with my oils. And sometimes I feel that way making our blends and rollers for various things.⠀
And if it keeps us sleeping and healthy, I’ll keep making those potions, thank you very much. ⠀
Today's quick tip: Immune Support
Add two drops of each into an empty veggie cap. Take 2 or 3 times throughout the day to boost your immune function.
If you're already sick add a couple drops of oregano in there with it. Oregano acts as a natural antibiotic.
You can also add 10 to 20 drops of each oil in a 10 mL roller bottle and top with fractionated coconut oil to roll on the bottoms of the feet and down the spine. A few times daily.
🔑Consistency is key 🔑
Viviendo en la "gran urbe" aveces es difícil tomarnos unos segundos para apreciar lo que nos rodea, el stress, las prisas y el malhumor esta a la orden del día resultado de una vida agitada y rutinaria.
Sin embargo aveces en el camino se nos atraviesan ciertas señales donde la apreciación visual es un deleite que pocos sabemos notar.
Hoy en mi jardín, prendido a una rama de mi bugambilia me encontré este diminuto nido, propiedad de un colibrí, y con premio!!
No cabe duda que estas diminutas cosas te llenan el corazón de regocijo , cuando un rinconcito del jardín en medio del gigante de concreto sirve de hogar para pequeñitos animales que por el solo hecho de existir te transmiten una dosis de buenaondez
Espero poder ver a los minicolibris cuando salgan del cascaron 😊💕#colibri#nature#naturallife#beautiful#naturaleza#huevos#hummingbird#hummingbirdeggs
